Ryan you might want to speak to Don directly about the lake -I believe he visits CT once in a while, and certainly Bivouac as well.

Speaking of pink lakes, I was surprised that the article that you linked did not include mysterious Spotted Lake near Osooyyos. There are a few pink lakes in there, too.

I've got a pic of Dusty Rose too. It's in northern Tweedsmuir Park north of Bella Coola, on the east side of Thunder Mountain. YVR to Terrace flight, east side of the plane, window seat great views on a sunny day.

Dru nailed the location. Although, I would recommend the hike and climb of Thunder Mountain as the area is very scenic and access is actually quite good. It's a short drive up the Noosgulch River Road to near the base of the mountain and relatively open forest travel to the slopes of Thunder Mountain. I'm actually surprised I haven't seen other reports from this area given the scenery and wilderness setting! That trip ranks amongst the best I have ever made! I first learned of this lake after reading the Bella Coola Symphony by George Whimore, but I no longer see this article online. Perhaps it can still be found in a climbing journal?

edit: Apparently the article is in the Canadian Alpine Journal

Actually I have a bunch as it turns out. Here's a shot with it top centre and the summit of Thunder at top right. Neat country.

If there's interest in this area, I could post a trip report and pics?

Of course you could just put on a pair of these "Rose Colored Glasses" Then every lake could take on that hue!

Here is a picture of this lake taken from the summit area of Thunder Mountain. No filters were used, lol. I may have processed the picture a little, but the color of the lake really shows when seen in person, and is quite unique. If you look closely, the color flowing into the lake is a darker purple and the outflow creek also appears as a "dusty rose" color.



There's a couple of other ponds really of a similar hue, whilst the 3rd one nearby is a more traditional blue-green.
